Former star of The Practice and current star of Big Shots, Dylan McDermott, is getting divorced from longtime wife Shiva Rose. The two character actors made a serious go of it but have been separated for about a year. Bummer, man.
- FROM OUR EXPERTS
The grand-daughter of America's greatest publisher and inspiration for Citizen Cain (the Citizen Cain of films), William Randolph Hearst, fancies herself a military man. Lydia Hearst may be dating a helicopter pilot who's heading back to Iraq. She's organizing some USO efforts and supporting troops as best she can. God bless America!
Charles Haeberle, 39, moved to Maine from Key West, Fla. six years ago at the urging of his mother, who claimed it would be a good place to "find a nice girl." Impatient as ever to find his soul mate, Haeberle recently gave fate a nudge via an ad placed in the local paper. If his love of dogs, kids and outdoor sports doesn't hook a lady, there's always the $5,000 he's offering to his future wife. Plus a four-carat engagement ring and a one-year anniversary gift, both of which he already owns.
A while back, people were saying—and are still saying—that the institution of marriage was dead. That couples were not interested in and did not need to make their bonds legal. Well, not so, says The Guardian. In a recent article, new research suggests that it’s not the interest level that’s affecting declining marriage rates—it’s income levels.
Told the presses and stop the phones. A British tabloid is reporting that Justin Timberlake may be ready to settle down with Jessica Biel. They list a handful of specious reasons to draw the story together. This would close a lot of doors for JT though. Would it be worth it?
OMG. Billy Zane and Kelly Brook are back together and the Cinderella story continues. And not a moment too soon, relations between their 2 countries were already at their most strained in decades. Maybe this will inspire some other celebrity couples to try and make another go at it.
Denise Richards has a new show and It's Complicated. No, silly, that's the name of her show and presumably a 2 word descriptor. She went on Larry King to settle some things and was surprisingly cordial about Charlie Sheen. Maybe we've got the wrong idea about her.
I am the youngest of three kids in my family and the last to get married. My mother is practically going to kick me down the aisle in October. But silly me, I thought that’s where the pressure ended. I was wrong. This past weekend we had a family reunion at Lake Norman in North Carolina. My brother and his wife brought their adorable 2-year-old daughter Lauren (the first grandchild in the family) and my sister and her husband brought their newborn, Jacob. I love being an aunt. I get to coo at Jacob when he’s smiling and happy, and I get to pass him back to my sister when he’s got a big diaper blow-out or starts crying for no reason at all. Everyone in the family was oohing and ahhing over the darling new additions to our family and then began placing bets on when Fred and I were going to be popping out our own. “I’ve told everyone it will be in the first year of marriage,” my grandmother said to me, matter-of-factly.
TV's George Takei (Sulu from Star Trek and Hiro's dad on Heroes) is set to make more news. He and his long time partner, Brad Altman, are set to get hitched. They're celebrating the recent California Supreme Court decision by throwing on a little Elton John and getting married. Hopefully, closeted fanboys will be able to celebrate without too much trouble.
This is a seriously worthwhile break-from-work quiz. Not only is it fun to see which "Sex and the City" character your dating habits are most like (or were, if you're taken), but you get a free analysis of your dating style from top relationship psychologist Dr. Diana Kirschner. My responses unexpectedly pegged me as having Samantha's dating style though my love life certainly doesn't resemble her flavor of the week routine (pre-Smith, of course)! According to Dr. Diana's analysis, Samantha-like daters often fall into the "Chase Me" dating pattern defined by running away from a relationship before getting hurt. Sounds like Sam to me!
CW's Gossip Girl has provided just as many fireworks off-screen as on-screen.This time around, Sebastian Stan (the irredeemable Carter) may be hooking up with Leighton Meester (queen bee Blair). Or is the network (if we can call the CW a network) just trying to keep this thing hyped? Hmm.
